Editors' Review

This step-by-step file duplicate finder will help you quickly locate and delete redundant files; however, we recommend that novices proceed with caution when it comes to deleting any found duplicate files.

Easy Duplicate Finder uses a three-step process to quickly and easily locate and remove duplicate files from your system. Simply add the folders you wish to scan and define the file mask (all files, JPEG, MP3) from the drop-down menu. Click the Start button in Step 2 and the program very quickly displays any found duplicates. While the program is scanning your system, you can actively watch the numbers of files scanned, original files to duplicates, and the space used by said files. Using the export button, we were able to easily export the program's findings. Finally, we had to decide what to do with the files. We had the option of deselecting all files, renaming them, moving them to a folder, and deleting selected files. We went through each option, and all worked perfectly. The Settings menu gives you two file-comparison options (CRC32 and byte-by-byte) and help is available through the publisher's Web site.

The program does add extra desktop icons without asking and we had to manually remove some items after the program was uninstalled. Still, Easy Duplicate Finder proved to be a very thorough and reliable file-management tool, but because of the risk of accidentally deleting important files, we only recommend this program for more-experienced users.

"Slow and full of adware"

March 01, 2011  |  By jjacobus

 |  Version: Easy Duplicate File Finder 3.1.1.41

Pros

Worked as advertised. Screen layout was intuitive

Cons

Very slow. Most annoying for evaluation is that it keeps pushing ads in your face to spend $30 on the full version.

Summary

Better products are available for free: Auslogics Duplicate File Finder, or go to Sourceforge.net and try several open source projects that do a better job.

"EDF not meant to find different files with same name."

February 22, 2011  |  By starfire990

 |  Version: Easy Duplicate File Finder 3.1.1.41

Pros

EDF will find exact duplicates. if the file is named different it doesnt matter. EDF will also find music even if it is different size or bitrate etc with music tag mode if it has the same name and artist in the metatag.

Cons

EDF does have a short eval only works to remove 10 sets of duplicates. but this should be sufficient to display the power of the program.

Summary

EDF works great at locating and removing duplicate files, and even similar music (same song different recording properties) If you want to find similar photos, try duplicate file finder.

"Inadequate eval capacity, file matching options."

February 20, 2011  |  By dfbai

 |  Version: Easy Duplicate File Finder 3.1.1.41

Pros

Did not find beneficial. No adequate opportunity to evaluate before it expired. Poor choice of eval version limit strategy on part of developer.

Cons

Would not find dupe photos of different sizes with same name.
First search was already over eval limit. Eval lasted about 5 minutes and could not actually delete any files.

Summary

Hard to find decent program to eliminate multiple copies of photos with same name and different sizes (preserve original).
